Intergate.Manhattan Gets to Level 3
A ninth major telecom carrier is a great holiday gift for Sabey Data Center's Dan Meltzer. (It's way better than the argyle socks we've gotten for the last 11 years.) The firm inked a huge deal with Level 3 at its Intergate.Manhattan facility, a 1.1M SF data center at 375 Pearl St in NYC. Level 3 will take up space with such players at United Fiber & Data, XO Communications, and Verizon. This is on top of being the data hub to some data crunchers as well, including the New York Genome Center, Windstream and most recently Amsterdam Internet Exchange.
So we asked Dan what three predictions he has for 2014. And overall it's gonna be a good year. "I think it's actually going to be a great year," he says, with increased leasing activity in data centers. Plus he says he expects many of the mid-sized data center players to start M&A activity to increase size and footprints. And Dan's final prediction? It can only come from a true New Yorker: "I think the Yankees are going to win the World Series."
